As per the suggestions of medical experts at Centers of Herniated disc treatment Greenville , it is possible to treat mild pain at home. In severe pain cases of slipped disc patients need to undergo surgery to have a permanent cure though. Read on to learn the home remedies that are tried and tested for years to relieve the slipped disc pain.

A little cockroach milk with those cookies? Chock full of protein, the insect milk may someday be transformed into a food supplement worthy of human consumption, new research indicates.

Scientists have found that the Pacific Beetle Cockroach feeds its bug babies a formula which is remarkably rich in protein, fat and sugar.

Don’t expect to find it next to the regular milk in the dairy section, however, at least not for now.

“Any liquid harvested from a cockroach is not true milk. At least not as we think of it,” said Becky Facer, director of school and educator programs at Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta.

Most people would agree. After all, the insect liquid takes the form of protein crystals in the guts of baby cockroaches.

“The protein crystals are milk for the cockroach infant. It is important for its growth and development,” said Leonard Chavas, one of the scientists behind the research. He explained the crystals have a whopping three times the energy of an equivalent mass of buffalo milk, about four times the equivalent of cow’s milk.

“The interest here was, what is it really made of?” said Chavas, one of the authors of the research, published in July in the journal International Union of Crystallography.

Chavas and his colleagues examined the species, also known as Diploptera punctata, which is the only species of cockroach known to be viviparous — able to bring forth live babies that have developed within the mother’s body, instead of the mother laying eggs to develop outside her body.

Like other viviparous creatures, this species of roach nourishes its growing embryos with a protein-rich liquid secreted by its brood sac — the roach version of a uterus.

Soon after the embryo ingests the liquid, protein crystals develop within its midgut. Chavas and his colleagues extracted one of these crystals to learn more about it and its potential nutrition. Following tests and even genome sequencing,...
Bean Salad With Bacon and Chives
Ultimately, any white bean works in this recipe (you could substitute Great Northern beans, navy beans, or even garbanzo), but we found that silky, creamy cannellini beans taste best. The white kidney beans have a nutty flavor and a smooth but al dente texture, and, as a bonus, they hold their shape well, so our Bean Salad with Bacon and Chives looks as good as it tastes. We’ve also eliminated a few steps; rather than whisking a dressing, then coating the beans, we toss it all together at once, and you can store that mixture in the refrigerator for a mostly make-ahead meal.

  1. 6slices bacon
  2. 315.5-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed
  3. 3tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  4. 3tablespoons olive oil
  5. 3tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  6. kosher salt and black pepper
  7. 3tablespoons chopped fresh chives

  1. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 12 to 15 minutes; crumble, cover, and set aside at room temperature. Toss together the beans, vinegar, oil, and mustard and season with ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Just before serving, toss with the chives and bacon.
Hey, you know that tomato condiment you buy at the store and put on everything? That's not ketchup. That's the junk-food, candified, mass-produced ugly stepchild of real ketchup. Not even close to the real thing, and not very good for you.

The good news is you can make your own in less than three minutes. It's healthy and packed with good stuff like lycopene, which may decrease the risk of prostate cancer. This homemade version has twice the flavor of store-bought and none of the corn syrup or other questionable stuff.

Healthy Homemade Ketchup Recipe


  • 1 six-ounce can tomato paste, organic (100% pure tomato pulp)
  • 2-3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 pinch ground allspice
  • 1 pinch powdered cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional: 1 teaspoon of your favorite low or zero-calorie sweetener


Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined.

Try These Variations

  • Add more or less water if you want it thinner or thicker.
  • Change the vinegar to change the flavor. Balsamic is awesome.
  • Adjust spices for endless variation. Garlic and onion powder work well. Diced peppers will add a kick.
